The core focus of our Nature Immersion Programs is one of embracing the outside environment to allow children to learn and grow as individuals. In doing so, they develop self-confidence, a sense of purpose and the opportunity to meet new challenges.


When children are allowed to “just” play in nature, deep learning takes place in the areas of ecology, biology, botany, math, physics, literacy, language and engineering. These programs emphasize social and emotional development, as well as cooperation, teamwork, kindness, compassion and empathy.


In all of our programs, Calleva follows the “challenge by choice” model and students will be pushed to stretch themselves in a safe environment.
